I've seen the Bird of Prey at the US Air Force Museum in Dayton. Its hanging from the ceiling right above the test copy of the F-22 Raptor. Every aviation fan in the world should make it to the US Air Force Museum in the states once in their life. Words can't describe it.

I honestly thought this was just a small assembled part of a fighter , ready to have its wings and fins attached. Pretty cool.

Wow, Does that thing fly? Looks like some drawing in an old book of how things "are" (were) going to look in the year 2000. :-)

This shape is the exact same shape of the plane from the movie "Stealth".

Very smooth surface finish on this aircraft results in exceptional stealth capabilities second to none. It is probably the most stealthy aircraft known. RCS is smaller or comparable to a mosquito!
